A Sea of Love makes a normal great summer read. It's got the requirements of a chick lit book- a cute boy, a spunky heroine with lots of character, fun, humor, interesting circumstances that lead to the main character growing as a person and of course.. the girl snagging the guy! I moderately enjoyed it, but it could have been better. It seemed to me that Darby was whiny and self- absorbed, and seriously needed to grow up. Throughout the book, there was only a minuscule change in her attitude. Some parts of the book were pretty boring too. The book is a stereotypical chick lit book with no life lessons or exciting moments or even any particularly striking characters, but I suppose it's the type of book that you'll find cute and amusing if you pick it up in the library, read it in a day then forget all about the story a week after you finished it. If you want to read this book, I suggest to just borrow it from someone or from the library- it's not really worth buying.

Darby hates her life. Her father had a mid-life crisis and quit his job on Wall Street to move the family to Coconut Grove, Florida, to run the Seabreeze Hotel. His family always vacationed there, and when he wanted a change, he convinced the owners that he wanted to keep it the way it was, and sold it to him. Now Darby spends her senior year with only one new friend, Kate, and having to work a couple of nights a week in the hotel's restaurant.

On New Year's Eve, she feigns an illness and returns to her room on the top floor of the hotel. She has a secret spot on the roof she escapes to when she wants to be undisturbed. While on the roof, she notices a lone surfer on the water. She is transfixed, and is startled to find out it is Zach Miller. Zach is a local boy who works at the hotel, as well. As he walks by, he sees her on the roof and waves "Hi" as he leaves the beach.

From that moment on, Darby is smitten. Kate encourages her to pursue Zach. But Darby receives mixed signals along the way. He offers to show Darby the wonders of Coconut Beach, but asks her younger brother to come along. The two travel to pick up lobster for her dad and she's convinced Zach is going to kiss her, but the moment passes. Finally, he asks her out on a real date. And it is wonderful!

Darby starts to accept her new life in Florida, seeing Coconut Grove as a resident rather than an outsider. It's only when she and the Spirit Club are working on their Valentine's Day float does everything begin to go awry. Her boyfriend from New York City arrives unannounced. The problem is, she and Brendan never officially broke up. She just moved away and then they stopped communication after awhile. With her blossoming romance with Zach on the line, Darby has to do everything she can to keep her new life going in the direction she wants it to go.

I loved SEA OF LOVE. It's a perfect romantic story for the upcoming Valentine season. Darby has her ups and downs, but as with all the books in the Romantic Comedies series, you know it's going to have a sweet ending, one way or another!

This novel was all right.... but it was a little too childish and had no substance to it.
